Would love a recommendation for a good/great acupuncturist in Oakland or Berkeley for general well being and staying healthy.

Brian Barlay in the Temescal neighborhood of Oakland. 510-654-7040. I have several issues that he's helped with. Very knowledgeable and thorough. good luck! brianbarlay.com
I've had a great experience with John Koko at Turtle Island Integrative Health in Berkeley. He really listened to my concerns and my needs and completely resolved the issue that I started seeing him for. I know that he also treats people for overall wellness vs. only targeting problem areas. I am very grateful!
Nancy Rakela, Berkeley Acupuncture is great! http://www.nancyrakela.com/
Hi love Sara Weinberg. She is located in Elmwood and was great for me for fertility issues as well as pain in my back and neck. She takes insurance and has flexible hours. Here is her website. http://www.saraweinberglac.com/
Mary Lynn Morales is a fantastic healer. She has an office in Berkeley.
Brian O'Dea, if he's still at the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley (he also has his own acupuncture practice), has been extremely helpful. He is gentle, intelligent, and kind. He has helped me immensely with my back problems that didn't get better any other way I tried. I never thought I'd let someone stick needles in me but if you get it done, get it done by Brian. He is nothing short of amazing.
You need to experience the Berkeley acupuncture project and ask for Julia. She is the owner and she is a wonderful person. All acupuncturists who work there are skilled though. The atmosphere is wonderful for relaxation and the prices are extremely affordable. I strongly recommend the place and as they call it, the Bap-naps ;-)
Danielle Boucher L.A.C. practices in downtown Oakland (and SF) and is very knowledgeable about healthful living. https://www.yelp.com/biz/danielle-boucher-l-ac-san-francisco
Rachel at City Pulse acupuncture in downtown oakland is awesome! I have been going to her for years. She takes insurance and will work with you if you don't have insurance. https://www.yelp.com/biz/city-pulse-acupuncture-san-francisco
